Leggett has the skills to contribute immediately. Glad he won't miss out on the season.

Good news...I guess?

We could use some depth at TE against the pups, but at least he'll be back for the majority of the season, and evidently cooper is coming about halfway through the season, so that's good


Our game vs. UGA shouldn't hinge on a true frosh TE

I'll just say this... if we're relying on a true freshman at TE to win the game vs. UGA, we're doing something wrong. I think between Seckinger and McCullough we should be alright. Seckinger will surprise some people.

I didn't mean that as to say we rely on him, but in the overall passing game, the TE is a pretty helpful asset. I doubt this will change the outcome of the game, it's just nice to have all depth possible. Makes me feel "safer" in a sense


Re: Our game vs. UGA shouldn't hinge on a true frosh TE

He was our best TE. What depth do we have at that position? Maybe I'm missing something. Seckinger is 30 pounds underweight, and McCullough has yet to show up.


Re: Good news...I guess?

this IS excellent news! I'm sure he would've played limited snaps against UGA, but we NEED our very best & most experienced players on the field to whip the dawgies for sure! at least he'll be able to participate soon & continue to learn, practice & grow in our system...it may even be a good thing to slow it down for him slightly & relieve some pressure in a young player with BIG expectations. he Will contribute this season I'm positive of that. Seckinger looked good in the spring game after re-watching it 3 times over the last few days (surprised that ESPN & media are lovin us so much!!!).
GO TIGERS!!!!

So what quality tight end do we have available against UGA? They have two all-Americans at that position. This is looking grimmer with every passing day.


That is a relief....


Posted: Aug 14, 2013 9:22 PM
 

However, we need some of these TE to really step up before we take the field against UGA.


Re: That is a relief....


Posted: Aug 15, 2013 10:01 PM
 

Who are you referring to as far as stepping up goes? Are there some hidden talents there that we just haven't been informed of??


I think Seckinger will step up and........

be the man now at TE. He was an outstanding receiver in HS and just needed a big opportunity. Well, here it is. I realize that he may not be the starter, but he is the best receiver.


yeah, wasn't he some highly rated stud in HS??***


Posted: Aug 14, 2013 9:53 PM
 




He was a little overlooked coming out of HS.........


Posted: Aug 14, 2013 10:07 PM
 

because he came from a small school. But he put up gaudy receiving numbers and really impressed our staff with his size, athleticism, versatility and toughness. He could play wr in the slot if he had to but gives us a real intelligent, hands guy at TE.


Re: yeah, wasn't he some highly rated stud in HS??***


Posted: Aug 15, 2013 10:07 PM
 

Yeah, but he's still 25 pounds underweight for a TE, who has to be able to block as well as catch passes. So when he's in the game, UGA will know we aren't going to run, because he can't block effectively. Dead giveaway.


Re: I think Seckinger will step up and........

agreed. seckinger has reportedly been much more physical recently, and he certainly has the receiving skills to get the job done. he knew that he was going to be starting this game since april. i think he's going to be just fine. in the bigger picture of the season though, getting cooper and legget back is huge. very relieved to hear that legget's injury does not require surgery.


Long term

I think Leggett is going be the man.

If he has a medial ligament tear, then he should have surgery. They don't heal themselves. Don't sacrifice a potentially great player for some short-term gain. I hope Dr. Bowman will step in and knock some sense into these coaches' heads.


The Chad will have a plan. We have plenty of Hands that

can catch the ball. He will work a plan that will work around these misfortunate circumstances. Have daith in The Chad!

Have FAITH! ;)


21 TD's from the Tight End spot the last two years. That


Posted: Aug 14, 2013 10:19 PM
 

number is unreal. That's a ton of production from any receiver position but for the Tight End spot that is a big big number.

I remember watching some of his HS videos. One thing that always stood out was his ability to catch the ball.
Seemed to always pluck the ball out regardless of how poorly it was thrown to him. We will be just fine.

And that's just what we don't have now.


Our 1st Conference game is 09/19. Hope he's back.***

this is huge... the TE and wheel route to a RB are Clemson's only way to deceive the defense when you need a big play and the WRs are well defended. and they go hand and hand, so w/o a TE, the wheel route doesn't work as well. yes, we get him back, but everyone know we're playing a 3 game season and we need to be at full strength for game 1.


Re: Football Player Update: Jordan Leggett injury update


Posted: Aug 15, 2013 10:19 PM
 

Exactly, and we won't be nearly anywhere full strength
against UGA. Our only hope is that they make a ton of mistakes.

Gamecock fan here. I followed this today & I'm glad for him & CU that it seems to be a fairly minor injury that could have been much much worse. So get well soon Jordan Leggett. I do not wanna see any of these great kids hurt on either side!
